    Love a Prairie Chicken

    Males usually choose “booming ground” or “lek” sites on a higher elevation with short grass in order to perform their mating dances, calling for females. Nests are built in tall grass where the female lays four to fifteen eggs that hatch in about 26 days, during a time when insect populations can provide nourishment for chicks. Young stay with hens for about eight to ten weeks. Conservation measures are underway to improve and preserve habitat.

    For every website we build, Double Fox Websites adopts an endangered animal in our client’s name. Our goal is to help these beautiful creatures, one foxy website at a time.
